The School Commission, Parents Club, staff and principal have
agreed that all students attending St. Vincent de Paul School
are required to wear the school uniform. The school uniform is a
symbol of a student’s pride in him/herself and the school;
therefore, uniforms must be appropriately sized and must be
appropriately worn. Every student is expected to be in complete
uniform unless he/she has a valid, written excuse from his/her
parents for that day only. Our uniform policy will be strictly
enforced. Failure to adhere to the uniform policy will result in
a uniform infraction slip.
